Sunglasses 101

As summer approaches and you're ready to shed the layers of knits and outerwear, here's a look at some of the eyewear trends to come this year. From futuristic to playful novelty lenses, these sunnies are the easiest way to channel those summer vibes!

Modern Cat-Eye:

The cat-eye is having its moment, including a distorted cat-eye frame that looks like it's been squashed vertically. A more accessible variation of this trend is the oversized classic with funky framework to modernise the look. 

Exaggerated frames make the style feel bold and inspired, taking you from classically glamorous to unexpectedly edgy. Mix with a silky pyjama style shirt for that cool-girl/Selena vibe.

Novelty Shades:

Taking inspiration from the revival of maximalism, there is definitely space for some fun and playful eyewear this summer. A marriage of two trends - round frames and coloured lenses - these novelty shades are perfect for festivals and holiday fun. 

Yeah, circular shapes are a nod to the 70s, but these flirtatious frames feel far more modern than retro.  The trick? Bold colours and adventurous shapes. Step out of your comfort zone and play around until you find your perfect fit.

Futuristic Aviator:

I'm sure you're aware that aviators have been around for a while (thanks, Ray-Ban) but a new style of aviators have arrived and they've hit flight mode. The new aviator is seriously retro, oversized and edging on masculine. 

Inspired by the 60s and 70s, the  androgynous style is futuristic with a hint of sports luxe. Stick to mirrored lenses, and pair with an off-the-shoulder number and slick hair for an effortlessly cool look.
